Strep related: There are at least two forms of rash associated with strep. One is related to a toxin released by living strep germs, typically flat, sand papery and rosey. Anther is a hive like eruption (bumps) that can be associated with it. There are a few STD associated rashes, but what you describe is not how they appear.
